Sticky question :)


Recommended Posts

For one of my fanless cooling projects I come with idea to slap heatsink on the bottom of mainboard PCB, just bellow the Vcore mosfets to cool them a little.


Back of my case is already prepared for this: http://ax2.old-cans.com/s.php?p=wc&id=116&c=8&d=1&v=v2

And ventilation holes are made as well: http://ax2.old-cans.com/s.php?p=wc&id=115&c=8&d=1&v=v2


The only one remaining question is - where to get a quality thermal double sided tape / sticky? :help:


I have no idea even for what to search and look... Anyone, please?

I would bet that 3M or something has to made something like this, however I'm clueless ATM.

A hint, pls? :)

lol Dude funny you should ask this as I just did myself and got this link in the reply



and the best bit is if you order with a bogus company name they send you a free sample

worth a try i just put my order in for T414 and something else from the other list that i have no idea what it is but it'll be fun finding out but the tape is supposed to be good stuff

Really nice system, trodas. The case you used looks interesting. However, I couldn't find the case model listed. What type of PC case is that ? Thanks.

Branjo - lol, interesting way to obtain thermal conductive sticky :D But they probably did not ship samples overseas (eg. to Czech republic) ...

I already digged something that come with these Thermaltake ram heatsinks:


(probably best pic of it, the left 4 fins is choped from other one and added on the Epox 8RDA+)

However I dubt about the quality (it says SEKISUI #5760 on it - who know's how good this is :confused: ) and it is also slightly smaller that the wanted heatsink :rolleyes:


It looks like I running out of the options as I desperately want to put my main PC together finally, so... as soon as the final few missing caps come, I just have to use what I have at hand...


PS. already found this:


and in europe:







thespin - thank you. Well this is Eurocase :nod: From Czech makers and actually one of their cheapest models, so, nothing fancy. I like the style, tought it might be slightly bigger for me :P:D You probably will have hard time to get it anywhere in USA - same as go for other things for me ;)

My mods make the case looks interesting, don't they? And actually fanless working machine was in it too, so...
